What artists are saying about Legends and Lyrics:

Justin Haywood of the Moody Blues: "The whole thing is absolutely brilliant-I’m so pleased….It’s so beautifully lit and shot!"

Kris Kristofferson: "This reminds of the days when we’d be and nights we’d be sitting there trying to knock each other out with songs and pass the guitar around.  Some of the best times I’ve ever had in my life.  Listening to, and listening to you guys, it’s a little daunting to follow but it’s the reason I love Nashville."

Gavin Degraw: "By the way, I must say I am really enjoying this form. This is very rare."

Reggie Hamm: "I’d love this show even if I wasn’t on it. It’s awesome being on stage with these two fabulous ladies and having fun."
